cyberghostface: (Spidey & MJ)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily


So here we are with the first issue of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man with Miles Morales as Peter Parker's successor. True to Bendis fashion, it appears that we're going to be dealing with an arc-long origin story. If you were expecting this to pick up from Miles' appearance in Fallout with him already dressed up as Spidey, you're going to be disappointed. Personally, I thought it was a good start.

So like Peter Parker, Norman Osborn has his fingers in the origin of this Spidey, albeit from a distance. He was trying to replicate the same spider that bit Peter.

Our introduction to Miles:



This time it goes differently:



Now what appears to be the Ultimate version of the Prowler is seen breaking into OsCorp (at this point, Norman is gone, having been exposed as the Green Goblin) to steal some stuff (mostly money) but unbeknownst to him, the new OsCorp spider has snuck into his bag. This Prowler appears to be Miles' uncle (or at the very least, is connected to the Prowler). Miles goes to visit him, and the spider sneaks out of his bag and...



Miles has a bit more dramatic reaction than Peter does, and is foaming at the mouth. He gets better, but Miles' father comes in and gets into a big argument with the uncle about Miles visiting him. Appears there's some bad blood between them. Miles runs out of the room.

His father goes to look for him, but he can't find him...only thing is, Miles is right there.

Miles can get invisible too?
Is it only me or do any one else also thinks he might end up being the "Ultimate" version of the Iron Spidey (that Civil War-esque costume)?
Like being able to "slightly fly", etc..but through powers rather than the costume.

Also, loving him so far! Go Miles! Become a classic like Miguel O'Hara! (still my darn' favorite alternate version of Spidey to this day!!!)

Well, he has the costume for it.

I finally figured what made me think of Miguel when I first saw the design. It's the division between the upper and lower portions. The lower is all black, in both of their costumes, while the upper has the spider-motif.

I could see that, but only if the make sacrifices with his other powers. he can't be spiderman PLUS invisibility and hovering, that just wouldn't be fair. He'd need a whole new rogues gallery to even cope with that.

Looks like a solid opening for the series and the character. I like that he has some completely different powers from Peter, and that it seems like his family life, while having some similarities, feel very different as well.

It was very weird to see Spider-Man have parents.

Great first issue.

So how is he disappearing like that? If it's something inherited from the spider, like chromatophores or something similar, shouldn't the effect be limited to his body and not his clothes?

Maybe he projects a stealth field instead of actually turning invisible?

And he's younger than Peter was....appears to be what 12? 13?

The issue happened "11 months ago," which could put him at 14 when he debuts as Spider-Man. IIRC, Peter was 14 when he debuted, so that makes sense.

Props to Miles -- if a spider the size of my hand bit me, you'd probably be able to hear my screaming and flailing and carrying on from the other side of the state.

I thought this issue was kind of average. Yeah, Miles seems like a cool character and I don't have anything against him. I mean yeah, I loved Peter. Pete's always been my favourite character, since I was a kid watching the 90's Spider-Man cartoon.
But Miles is fine, he's a bit shy and hasn't shown much personality yet, but he's fresh, seems like he has a decent supporting cast. I've got nothing against him.
My biggest issue was that the story was pretty slow, that's always been the case with USM though, it's not really a story about Spider-Man but the story of a kid and his life, when he just so happens to be Spider-Man. I imagine it'll read much better in the trade.
Sara Pichelli's art was amazing though, I wish there was more I could say about it, but it's fantastic.

...I don't really like Miles.

Is he on large animal sedatives or something? He doesn't seem to have any actual reactions to anything. And hey, you've got something really positive! IMMEDIATELY MOPE AND WHINE.

He even looks asleep when he falls down after being bitten by the spider.

Can I have a little energy? Reaction? Something? Hello?

I dunno, I kinda took his sad reaction to winning the lottery to mean that he felt bad that other students didn't get in

I actually quite like the idea of giving Miles somewhat different powers than Peter, although I'm not sure about the power set we seem like we may be getting, might be TOO off and prevent him from actually inheriting the mantle in the public mind.

But I'm interested in seeing where this story goes.

I'm diggin' Miles so far. I like how he understood right away that by getting a chance at that school, he was taking it from others. I'll wait another issue to decide if I want the series, other wise it's cool

I like him. I softspoken, calm, and subdued boy who automatically notices how his actions, or even his presence, affects other people. HE could use more devlopment, and I think more personality *but he's new, so w/e, but I am very happy hes not just a biracial peter. Also, I love the accidental discovery of his powers, just like peter.

I quite like him myself. I agree about his needing to exhibit more personality, but he's much like Peter in that regard as well. I always got the feeling that Peter became a much stronger personality after he got his powers, and I think that Miles will go the same route.

You know what I just realised? Miles isn't biracial Peter Parker, he's biracial Shinji Ikari.

Quite, subdued, empathetic to a crippling degree, not taking well to good things happening to him if it means hurting others. All he needs now is to say something about not running away when he dons his Spider suit.

Kudos to Bendis for referencing the last time that a black guy put on the Spider-threads.

Can someone post a pic of Ultimate Prowler? I'm intrigued to see what he looks like. Hobie was always one of my favourite NY heroes.
